Abstract

Due to a change in law in December 2019, the use of "Forensic DNA Phenotyping“, i.e. technologies for the prediction of skin, hair and eye color as well as age, is now permitted in the context of criminal investigations. This article discusses the reliability, usefulness and legitimacy of such extended DNA technologies and thus the framework conditions for their application in Germany. It is revealed how complicated, error-prone, demanding, ambitious and sensitive the use of these technologies in investigations can be if appropriate precautions are not taken and if they are not limited to prudently supervised individual cases. Finally, based on this analysis, measures for the application and regulation of extended DNA technologies in Germany are proposed.
